Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Jax Is Played By Many People On League Of Legends All Around The Globe Although, Not Many People Know How To Strategically Play Him. That's Why I'm Here To Show/Tell You How I Play Jax.
This Build Focuses On His Passive Which Stacks Up To 6 Gaining Him Attack Speed Per Stack, Items Such 'Guinsoo's Rageblade' Will Be Used In This Build As It Stacks Up To 8 Times.
Spells/Abilities Can Be An Issue When Starting A Clean Game Because Many People Tend To Max Out His 'Leep Strike' Although 'Counter Strike' Will Be Left Last. The Main Idea With This Build Is To Keep Your 'Counter Strike' Levelled In Moderation With The Other Skills/Abilities.
Early Game Could Get Messy If You Don't Purchase The Right Items & Max Out The Right Spells/Abilities. Start Off By Purchasing 'Boots Of Speed, x2 Health Potions & x1 Mana Potion'; As Many People Go To "Gank" In Early Game Or Team Fight At The Start, 'Boots Of Speed' Are Use- Full Because You Will Run Faster And Have A Better Chance To Out-Run The Enemy Team-Mates If Your'e On Low HP Or Mana.
Spells/Abilities Come Into Perspective As You Would Like Your'e Team To Get The First Kill Of The Game, That's Why You Put x1 Skill Point Into 'Counter Strike'; This Stuns The Enemy For A Short Period Of Time But Allows Your Team To Zerg/Smash Him Down A.S.A.P & Hopefully Gain 1-2 Kills Out Of That Battle.
As You Hit Into Mid-Game(15-30Mins) It Starts To Get Hectic As The Enemy Team Starts To Get More Skills/HP & Items, You Always Need To Be Above That; By Now You Should Have 'Berserker's Greaves & x2 Guinsoo's Rageblades. If You Dont, I'd Consider Farming Minions & Jungle/Ganking Other Enemies.
By Now Your'e Ultimate Passive Should Be Hitting Reasonable Damage & The Stacks Should Be Increasing Your'e Performance Like Crazy. Depending On The Situation, You Would Normally Go And Get Every Buff From Gollems And Dragons As Possible, Elixars Are A Maybe (Only If The Team Is Really Squishy & You Can Smash Turrets Fast).
Now Your On Your'e Way To Becoming An ANIMAL!, Where Your'e Focusing On Getting The Rest Of Your Items Such As 'Blood-Thurster, Phantom Dancer & Infinity Edge'
Jax The ANIMAL!
Start By Getting 'x2 Daggers & Brawler's Gloves' This Will Boost Your Critical Strikes And Attack Speed As You Are Focusing On Getting Your Phantom Dancer. Phantom Dancer Will Help Your Stacks Become More Effective And Make Your Ultimate's Passive Hit Like A Brick **** House, Once You Get That Your Almost Unstoppable.
At This Stage You Are Focusing On Farming, Ganking And Defending or Pushing Because Your Going To Need To By Your 'Infinity Edge' All Together As One Because You Have Only 1 Spot Left In Your Inventory.
As You Reach The 1Hour Or Even Before The 1Hour Mark You Should Have Every Thing On The Item List And That's When Your Team Will Need To Get Baron/Dragon/Buffs/Elixars Etc For The Full Effect Of This Build. Once You've Achieved These Goals.
You Are Well And Truly "Jax The Grandmaster".
